Staley, David J. – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2019
How can we re-envision the university? Too many examples of what passes for educational innovation today--MOOCs especially--focus on transactions, on questions of delivery.

Martin, James, Ed.; Samels, James E., Ed. – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2019
Colleges and universities have always had interesting relationships with their external communities, whether they are cities, towns, or something in between.
